Forgetting who you are,
your ambitions, your passions is crippling….but remembering – embracing
your purpose with a new sense of determination is more than
empowering….it's life altering. Charlie Myers is on a life altering
path that will cause the dammed to humble in silence.
night…just a few friends, how could it go so wrong? That was the
question seventeen year old Charlie Myers was asking when she found
herself in the ER. Outwardly nothing was wrong with Charlie, she was a
vision of perfect heath, internally she was battling a raging
headache…one the doctor told her she would overcome shortly, but
Charlie knew something else was wrong …very wrong.
Part of her
had been stolen…she was missing memories. Those memories were sacred.
They held the key to her sanity. They told her that the sinister
whispers, the shadows that came to life before her were not as ominous
as she felt they were. They held the bond with her late father, a famed
musician. They caused her to forget the one talent that allowed her to
face the darkness that haunted her every waking hour. They also masked
a much deeper bond, the face of the one that had stolen her heart, long
before the age of seventeen.
Sitting in the ER with her angry
mother she couldn’t figure out what she was missing, or even how. Her
thoughts told her that she needed to protect Britain, a friend of hers,
but that didn’t make any sense – Britain didn’t need to be protected
from anyone, he was strong, young, and absurdly wealthy. Charlie also
knew that even though her friend Bianca called Charlie her best friend,
she didn’t trust her …she was almost sure she despised her, but she
couldn’t figure out why, or understand how random thoughts were telling
her that she adored both Britain and Bianca – that they were her
saviors – that they brought silence to the unstoppable whispers, but
the silence scared Charlie. In her mind anyone or anything that could
bring silence to something that dark could not be good.
wanted to stay in NY, figure out what she was missing, why, and who was
behind it all, but her mother had other plans. Against her will,
Charlie was sent to Salem to live with her sister, within that small
town Charlie found her memories and so much more.
Her story begins now.
Wow, was the first thought that popped through my mind after reading See. I had never heard of Jamie Magee until about a month ago when I was approached through email about the release of the second book Witness. I read the summary and I was hooked. The actual story was even better. I was beyond intrigued and could not stop reading.
We all know how much music means to us. Without good music I think life would suck. Namely because there isn't a song that can't express what you are feeling at that particular time and moment. Why am I talking about music? Well because that is what the story is about! I loved how special the author made music, it made me see it in a different light. Her writing style is so well written and although I am not familiar with her other series, I look forward to reading them. I know they will have a great characters and writing.
Obviously I loved the characters:)
Charlie was cool, I couldn't connect with her on a personal level, but I do like her and think she is a good character. She is strong, stubborn, and independent. Draven, her boyfriend that she can't remember having, is AMAZING! I love him and the way he is with Charlie. Jamie definitely is an expert when it comes to romance. My goodness reading about Charlie and Draven would give me chills, I am getting chills just thinking about it.
They even have a crazy girl and a crazy boy, they are quite the pair of 'friends'.
This is a paranormal romance but it isn't your typical PR story. It is different in a good way. I actually liked the change from the typical vampires and werewolves. Check it out everyone. It has good guys and bad guys, an epic romance, the love for music and so much more. It will make you fall in love<3
Forgetting who you are
is hard, but not as hard as remembering. Remembering that you have no
idea how to face your demons, how to save the lost.
Charlie is at a sacred threshold.
‘glass box’, as she calls it, is slowly falling. Her childhood has
ended. The moment she has yearned for, the moment where she can go and
do anything, anything at all without seeking permission is now. She’d
dreamed of this time, all of her friends had, but now that it’s here,
she doesn't know which way to run, or if she should even run at all.
knew that running would be a goodbye forever, and she didn’t want that,
she wanted to freeze the time she was in, to stay in the calm before
the storm, the illusion that she could out wit the ones who seek her,
hold the one she loves, and play the music that gives her passion.
She’ll soon discover no one can hide from their fate, that time does not
stop in place, and that whether she chooses to perceive it or not, the
darkness has come.
What Charlie feared most, losing him, is a
threat now more than ever. A realm, a dark and twisted dream world has
called him, and now she must fight to save him, and others like him.
Standing in her way is a soul from another life, a boy that promises
that he will destroy her world, to save her life. With this threat in
hand, with the dark path that her friends are on, Charlie must fight to
find a way to leave, to trust that beyond her dimension there are souls
that can help her, help all of them. The only question is, will she find
them before it's to late, and if she can't, how is she going to use her
gift, the gifts they all share to save them.
It has been a couple of months from where we left off in See. This was good, real good. But I think I still liked the first book better. I guess what I did not like was when I first started reading, and found about Draven's fate, it turned me off to the story. Please do not take this as me hating the book because I thought it was great. Of course my disliking of his fate is kinda sorta important to the story! Plus I am entitled to disliking a few things about stories, I am only human;)
The plot was placed very well and there were some surprises mixed in there. I honestly wasn't sure where the story was going to go. Magee sure kept me on my toes!
One thing I absolutely love about Draven and Charlie is that their relationship is far from perfect. It is real and despite all the up and downs they have, they remain true to themselves. It is a pure love that makes me so happy inside! Plus is helps that all the characters are so gosh darn loveable. Make sure you read the books because you do not want to miss out on.
The characters and the storyline have made me an instant fan of Magee and now I know for sure I want to read more from her. Beautiful, I love this series!! It is amazing and can keep you entertained. I recommend the series to anyone and everyone.
